Here we go with the first proper show for 2018.
As usual, as you’ve come to expect since I started this whole thing back in 2008 (yes, it has been nearly 10 years!), you’ll be treated to a grab-bag of the best up-and-coming Hard Rock and Metal alongside the best of what’s out there already.
Since it looks like the usual Christmas/New Year release drought has come to an end, what have we got for you?
If you scroll down and take a look at the track list, it’s all there, but here are the edited highlights: New stuff from Judas Priest, Korn’s Jonathon Davis, Black Moth and the mighty Monster Magnet.
Also, since the last surviving member of the Motorhead line-up that recorded the likes of Ace Of Spades, Bomber, Overkill, Iron Fist, No Sleep Til Hammersmith and others, has passed away at 67, we’ll be paying tribute to the legend who was Fast Eddie Clarke.
Turn it up and praise the loud!
